Interesting to see how the designers considered the situation of a spy, providing everything likely to be needed but allowing for improvisation.
Also an excellent example of training. Clearly they'd done some 'granny testing' before making this film, because the announcer carefully discourages all the WRONG ways of using the radio!
(Is the announcer Ronald Reagan? Sounds like him.)
